Some more goodies at the Brotherhood.

I'd arranged to meet friends for coffee, and they said if they weren't in the cafe, they'd be in the opshop nearby, and sure enough, that's where they were. I'd been in the same shop two days ago, but for a small shop they have a fast turnover, and there is always new stuff!
I found this really ugly blouse for $1, with pretty machine embroidered Xmas motifs on it.

When I got home, I cut out the motifs and cut off the buttons. The rest of the shirt is in hubby's rag bag.

Somebody had apparently been to the USA and bought a heap of souvenir cloth badges, but never got around to sewing them on to articles of clothing. I'll be cutting them up to embellish fabric postcards, ATCs, or other patchwork. 40 cents each.

I love anything with Peacocks, so I wasn't going to leave this little brass dish beind - 50 cents!

There was a basket full of laces for $1 a roll, so I grabbed these to share with a friend in the USA who loves laces. The lady at the counter said "Oh that lace has been going out the door today!" and I wondered what else I'd missed out on!
